Silver Lakes is part of the Robert Trent Jones Trail, and is located about two hours west of Atlanta. Probably the toughest courses on the Trail, three separate championship 9's and a short course. It borders the Talladega National Forest and is routed on rolling land with plenty of water features, probably the most scenic on the Trail as well. The Backbreaker nine is definitely toughest, at 3,828 yards, The Heartbreaker at 3,846, ad the Mindbreaker at 3,579 yards, all from the back tees. Any combination of holes and the least slope rating is 148, the highest is 155, all with a variety of shorter tees. The holes roll through the hilly landscape with tall native fescue grasses the border and roughs, making a shot in the rough generally a stroke penalty. There's good bunkering throughout both in the fairways an around the green complexes. The greens are narrow, set up a bit, and with severe undulation. Sloping greens and fairways, narrow landing areas, and little room for error give you all the trouble you'll ever need on a golf course.
